Tasty Mexican food and lots of other things. Nice place, tired waiters but still friendly, the restaurant is very touristic and the prices are too high for this kind of food.

We ordered a sampler appetizer and shared it. Delicious. A little pricey but the beach and sea view were part of the price!

Excellent service was granted by miss Shedimara a few months ago when I had dinner at El Mexicano with my friends. She was helpful and attentive without being pushy. I was pretty busy the last few months and am now able to write this.
